Synopsis:

She’s a single mom holding on to her job. He’s a career man focused on his business. Can they put the past behind them in order to build a future together?

When Filipe Romano arrives at the SoliMar beach resort, his newest acquisition, he plans to complete renovations quickly before moving on to his next property. But a stumbling block arises when he discovers Celeste, the sister of his deceased best friend, is an employee at the resort’s aquarium, which he intends to sell. To complicate matters more, he has unresolved feelings for Celeste and blames himself for the accident that killed her brother.

Celeste Ferreira, a stressed single mom, needs a miracle. Without any prospects or means to start over, she clings to the job she loves as aquarist at the SoliMar Aquarium. After she discovers the new owner is Filipe, an old family friend, their history makes it hard for Celeste to trust him, especially with her position in peril.

Though closing down the aquarium makes good financial sense, Filipe finds himself reluctant to disappoint Celeste and decides to help her with the repairs for the upcoming inspection. But is working side by side enough to forget the past and build a new future, or is the pain between them too deep to move on?

As a single mother, Celeste has her hands more than full. But this is nothing new. Even when she was married, she didn’t have support from her husband. Despite this, she dotes on her sweet son, Lucas, and cares for him the best she can. She has experienced so much loss in her life and feels like she is pretty much alone. . .

Author Lucinda Whitney has written another sweet romance. As Celeste and Filipe learn to trust and forgive, their story touched my heart. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow despite obstacles and loved Celeste’s little five-year-old son. I also liked the way the swans played a consistent role in the story.

Though part of me cheered when Filipe dealt with one of the big crises, it really wasn’t very appropriate the way he did it. Not giving any spoilers, I’ll just say – it should have been done in private. True, it wouldn’t have been as dramatic, yet it would have been the right way to handle it.

While the characters in this book in may appear in other stories from the series, it is not necessary to read them to appreciate this one.
